Chris Palmer

I am a firm believer in positive thinking and positive reinforcement. I've been teaching both privately and in the classroom setting for 6 years now and I've learned that a performer can have all the talent and skill in the world, but if they don't believe in themselves they won't reach their full potential. My job is to unlock that potential by teaching my students both the skills they need to succeed and the belief that they can succeed.

Brien Henderson

I'm a composer primarily working in acoustic chamber music as well as a classical saxophonist.
As a saxophonist, I seek to represent the saxophone as the incredibly expressive and versatile instrument that it is. In my choices in repertoire, I prefer to lean toward 20th and 21st century music, but I am familiar with the standard repertoire for the saxophone and I spent several years playing jazz in combos and big bands.
In my teaching, I first always focus on fundamentals and continually return to those even when working on more advanced musical topics.

challenging material, effective practice techniques, and a great deal of
fun, I push my students to help create their own musical paths. For
beginners, I equally emphasize fundamental pedagogy, music theory, and
artistry, in a variety of musical styles. They learn correct breath
control, posture, and sound production to facilitate good habits to last
a life time. After 6 months, my students have always improved 10-fold,
